My name is Claudia Hleap and I am a Registered Dietitian and CDCES (Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist) in Philadelphia, PA.

I made this website to share my knowledge with individuals like you who care about food, nutrition, and wellness and to let you know about the different nutrition services I offer. 





Being a "Registered Dietitian" means that I am professionally trained to optimize my patients' wellness by translating nutrition knowledge and research into practical, individualized solutions. I work with clients by providing nutrition counseling and medical nutrition therapy that facilitates behavioral change and improves clinical symptoms. 

I work with a variety of patients and disease states, but specialize in Diabetes and weight management. I also counsel patients in the management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, prenatal wellness, bariatric surgery, gastrointestinal health, and oncology. 



A CDCES is a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist. This credential means I have accomplished over 1000 hours of documented diabetes education and passed an exam on intensive insulin and medication management for type 1 and 2 diabetes. I am knowledgeable of screening procedures, testing practices, and adjusting medications to optimize blood sugar control. 



I am able to cater to your individual health and nutrition concerns. If you are an individual who wants to improve your health through nutrition, but you do not fall into any of the above categories, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me!
